After a week of not bicycling while I continue to look for somewhere to borrow or hire a bike, I finally went on one of the hotel’s stationary bicycle machines. I have not used one of these before but figured out to set the resistance so that I was doing approximately my usual cadence, then peddled for an hour. The machine told me that I had gone 22.31 km equivalent, which is about right (and used up 582 calories!). I only added blue and white swallow to my “training” bird list though.
Yesterday I walked about 11.5 km to a place that allegedly was renting bikes, only to find it was obviously closed for the winter. Hey ho. I did see this nice gang of guira cuckoos though. These groups are always entertaining to watch.
